MADEIRA FILM FESTIVAL
“The Madeira Film Festival is non – competitive. As opposed to awarding filmmakers a prize each delegate will receive the ‘Laurissilva Ambassador Award’ thus helping to create awareness and recognition of Madeira’s endemic forest. Thanks to the coveted locations and unique atmosphere, MFF has become the key annual film event on the island, with the third edition concluding in April 2014 the odyssey continues yet the remit remains: To screen films whereby the predominate content venerates Madeira’s Laurissilva Forest. To inspire & nurture local talent. To challenge & stimulate the audience by virtue of audio – visual communication. Filmmakers personally present their work at the majestic Municipal Theatre in Funchal. The Madeira Film Festival has been privileged to screen such filmic repertoires such as Beasts Of The Southern Wild, The Hunt, The Hunter, Chasing Ice, Le Quattro Volte, Post Tenebras Lux amongst others plus musical concerts from The Kyle Eastwood Band, Maria de Medeiros, Escondido & Phamie Gow.”
